    As I have said before it is too bad that we couldn't hire Dick LeBeau as our head coach. I think age is the only reason he doesn't get a gig. I would love to have him to work over our D and then hire Norv Turner as our OC. Turner is an offensive guru and while not a very good head coach he would do wonders for our QBs and our offense IMO.

    Only problem is that if Dick LeBeau gets fired or retire, Norv would possibly become the Vikings head coach, no thanks!

    I wouldn't want that either but he is a great OC and if LeBeau can turn around the D we could be scary good in the next few years.

    Or Bevell or Del Rio or Gase or Quinn!?

    Time is ticking by though, Senior Bowl is coming, our roster, free agents, and draft picks need to be sorted through, and the longer we wait the more assistants and coordinators that will be off the market as well. Hate to make a rushed decision, but hate to keep waiting too!?!

    I am not worried about it unless Zimmer wants full control and Speilman refuses to give Zimmer full control so he packs his bags and leave Minnesota

    I hear ya. It's now down to us and the Browns looking for a HC. While we would have pick of the crop over the Browns, we don't know who the other new coaches are going to hire for their staffs. Not to mention that Spielman already said that the Senior Bowl is not a deadline to have a coach in place, although it would be ideal.

    Wouldn't it be funny if Spielman waited and didn't hire Zimmer so he could talk to those other coaches just to hear that Quinn is going to the Browns and the others want to remain with their current teams and see what becomes available next year? Then they go back to Zimmer and he says no thanks. Who coaches then? Musgrave. Preifer, maybe Singletary? Lol, if it ever happened, my guess is it would happen to the Vikings.
